Q: Are Nintendo wii consoles available in China

Does anyone know if Nintendo wii consoles available here. I have looked on Taobao and Amazon but cannot find anything. Someone said games consoles are banned in China, if this is so does anyone know why.

Of course they're available! Go to any electronics shop, they usually have them! But you won't be able to play online though, since they are cracked.

Same for PS3 and Xbox360.

Consoles are not banned in China, just not officially sold because Chinese people are not so much into paying a lot for a console and games, which is understandable (hence the cracked games and consoles). They're more into PC gaming.

The only problem with buying a non-cracked console in China is getting ahold of games.  It is almost impossible to find non-cracked games for the Xbox in China.  And if you do, they are hard coded in Chinese.  I am sure it is the same with the other consoles.

 

Now if you will forgive me, I have to get back to kicking alien butt in Xcom.  :)

A:What is 'formal offer letter'? Only legally accepted employment offer I know is a Contract! ... so, you just don't accept and sign the contract with the lower salary! Email exchanges, verbal discussions and other promises between you and employer aren't legally binding, so legal action isn't recommended. Mainly legal effective thingy is employer's stamped and signed contract! ... and after you ink it, employer can/will use your signed contract to apply for all necessary documents at Chinese governmental agencies as Working permit and all ... It would be better for you to not accept employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer not respecting the contract later on. -- icnif77
